Sehr einfache Unterkunft als Zwischenstopp

Posted May 26, 2016
Die Lage der Lodge ist ideal als Zwischenstopp zwischen Kings Canyon und Alice Springs. Die Zimmer sind wirklich sehr einfach eingerichtet. Das Bad müsste dringendst renoviert werden. Zum Teil kaputte Fensterscheiben einfach geklebt. Bettwäsche offensichtlich frisch gewaschen, trotzdem Flecken. Service war ok. Überraschend sehr gute Küche! Das Abendessen war fantastisch!!!

A pearl in the middle of nowhere!

Very friendly staff, a real dream to find such lovely hotel near the Glen Helen Close. Excellent location, spacious, a charming little pool, nice terraces on different locations around the homestead. Enjoyed a delicious dinner in the cosy restaurant. All in all the best place on our trip in the Red Centre.

Great location, remote and beautiful. Bear in mind the remoteness means no mobile phone coverage or wifi. Beds need replacing.

Gorgeous natural getaway

Friendly staff. Gorgeous surrounds, totally relaxing natural beauty. Fabulous live music on Saturday night. Close to Redbank Gorge, waterholes, gorgeous views and a fabulous walk up Mount Sonder for sunrise. Loved it!

Séjour très agréable. Jolie vue depuis les chambres côté rivière. Chambre simple mais suffisante. Très bon restaurant (cependant fermé le dernier soir) Possibilité de se faire à manger (BBQ) dommage que nous l avions pas su.

Convenience of location is the reason to stay here

Posted Mar 7, 2016 on Hotels
The motel itself is in need of updating, or at the very least basic maintenance. The door to our room essentially had no handle, only what was left of the broken one. And I fixed our bathroom door myself upon arrival. The location however was beautiful, had some great leisure time in the Glen Helen Gorge using the much talked about tubes that the hotel provides guests. There were however, only two of these tubes in usable condition.

Geniales Outback Erlebnis!

Lage super als Abstecker im Outback. Ideal vom Kings Canyon kommend die Meerenie Loop Street zu fahren (nur 4WD!) Hotel ist einfach, aber das ist genau das richtige im Outback!

Place to stay after a hard day on the road.

Pros: The staff went out of their way to be welcoming and friendly.
Cons: An injection of capital to really clean up the whole facility
Location: The location was great being right in the middle of the Macdonnel ranges and all the tourist attractions that area has to offer.
First appearance was very much of a shock. The advertisement was more than a little misleading in regard to the ambience and standard of the facility. All the staff were very pleasant, efficient and helpful. The overall cleanliness of the facility was fair with regards to the internal parts of the facility however the accommodation standard really left a lot to be desired and the grounds were a hotchpotch of run down buildings and clutter everywhere. Definitely in need of a major clean up. I also felt that the prices were way over the top when considered that it is only 131 kilometres from Alice Springs.
